ABOUT THE ARTIST
"It’s not the material that creates the result, but our ability to “fertilize” it with ideas."
Stefano Marchetti was born in Padova in 1970.
His first approach to jewellery is already in highschool where he learn how to work with metals. He graduates at the Academy of fine arts in Venice with a degree in sculpture. His jewels are part of important museum collections such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Musée des Arts Décoratifs,Palais du Louvre a Parigi, Museum of Art & Design, New York, The Alice and Louis Koch Collection, Basilea, Museo degli Argenti, Palazzo Pitti, Firenze, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and many more.
Stefano Marchetti, master goldsmith of the Padua school, explores new paths between art and science taking inspiration from multiple artistic influences. Japanese art, contemporary art, as well as ancient art, fragments and mosaics become constant elements of inspiration and study during the realization of his works.
Marchetti's jewels, made in gold, platinum, silver and shibuichi (an ancient Japanese alloy of copper and silver ) are reenactments of ancient beauties that merge with science and technology to give to the jewels
new possibilities of expression.
